Tv Season Info

In an epic showdown, David and his friends battled his demon, ultimately forcing it from David's body. Unfortunately, Farouk found a new host -- Melanie's husband "Oliver Bird" (Jemaine Clement) -- and escaped. Just when they thought they'd earned a moment of respite, a mysterious orb appeared and took David away to an unknown place. With David and Oliver missing and Farouk on the loose, the team forms an unlikely alliance with their former enemy "Clark" (Hamish Linklater) and his well-funded government organization, Division III. Meanwhile, Amahl Farouk (Navid Negahban) is on a new path to attaining infinite and world-ending power.

Critic Reviews for Legion: Season 2

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (9)

A brilliant piece of television.

But it's a bold vision for a genre where conflict usually boils down to muscular guys beating on each other. And it's what makes this season of Legion among the most subversive television you'll see this year.

Legion insists that it has lots to tell us about who we are, but it's worth watching, mainly, to understand what it is.

It's a dark, trippy corner of that universe, where time moves more slowly, but it's filled with moments and images you'll find nowhere else.

Either way, David going full tilt is an interesting place for the show (however unconvincingly it got there), because it opens up the narrative scope for season 3.

Legion may not be the deepest show on television, but it is the most multi-layered, and far and away the most lavish.

Audience Reviews for Legion: Season 2

Weird and intelligent, takes the core elements from the first series and dials it up to 11.
